The Sacramento Chapter presents

Katherine Stewart

“The Good News Club:
The Christian Right's Stealth
Assault on America's Children”

July 24, 2012
Sierra 2, Curtis Hall & Courtyard
2791 - 24th Street
Sacramento, CA 95818

In January 2009, Katherine Stewart learned that the Santa Barbara public elementary
school her children attended had added a Bible study class called the "Good News
Club" to its after-school program. Stewart's curiosity turned to concern as she
discovered that the unstated purpose of the club, which is sponsored by the Child
Evangelism Fellowship, is to convey the impression to its young members and their
schoolmates that their school favors a particular form of the Christian religion. She
soon learned that the Good News Club—a seemingly spontaneous and voluntary afterschool
program—was in fact part of a larger, calculated initiative by national advocacy
groups whose declared aim is to "take back" America's public schools and repurpose
them with a Fundamentalist Christian agenda.

Learn more about the religion-driven programs that are inserting themselves into public
school systems with unprecedented force and unexpected consequences.
Book-signing and reception will follow Ms. Stewart's presentation and Q&A. No
charge for admission. Donations welcome.
